I'd like to create a WiFi hotspot using my Incredible HTC phone. What software do I need to add to do this or can it be done with the built-in software?

All software for it is built-in. Look through
Setting->Wireless & networks menu. There must be items like
Portable Wi-Fi hotspot and
Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings
I got this to work by rooting the phone and installing CyanogenMod 7. The WiFi hotspot for tethering other devices is built into the operating system.
If your OS version is 2.2 or above you will have the option by default in the settings.
Setting->Wireless & networks->Tethering & portable hotspot-> Tick Portable hotspot.
